    Well, I've actually had it for 2 weeks now but I'm stoked. I did some wheeling-dealing and traded my American Pro Strat for this and I couldn't be happier. It has a huge neck, is so resonant it almost sounds like a 12 string when not plugged in, and sounds just like a Tele should through my Supro and pedals. The high-end Fenders are worth it

    I played one of those in a shop a couple weeks back. Incredible neck - wonderfully beefy. Didn’t plug it in - didn’t dare!

    Congratulations!

    Me too and have really been struggling with GAS since. My AO60s Jazzmaster is brilliant and I've heard nothing but good of all the AO series. I really shouldn't have clicked on this thread.

    Thanks. Really like it. And I wasn't taking away from the guitar in any way. I love 50s style teles with big necks. It looks (and I don't doubt, sounds) awesome! Congrats again. Happy New Guitar Day!

    Do you have to go custom shop if you want this same guitar from Fender with a 7.25" radius? I would love an American built 50's tele to original specs.

    Beautiful guitar!

    I have an inexpensive cloth strap on a nice guitar and it looks great and is really comfortable. It is the Musketeer on the right. These three guitars are named the Three Musketeers: Aramis, Athos and Porthos.

    That is lovely, but “so resonant it almost sounds like a 12-string when not plugged in” sounds like could be maybe just a mite bit of exaggeration... ;)
